It’s time for Tinkerlab’s Creative Challenge #10!
Rachelle‘s challenge this time around was all about flowers.
I had envisioned a contact paper flower collage or some kind of glued flower medley, but as things normally go around here: I am not in charge.
So, I followed Jane out to the “garden” with some scissors to collect a few specimens.
Jane’s been cutting with safety scissors since she was about two, so I let her have a lot of supervised freedom at three and a quarter years old. (I’ve got a scissor cutting post coming up soon…)
After she woke, we played around with the flowers, and she decided she liked plucking the petals the best.
Still, we didn’t have a craft or project in mind, so we left the petals lying on our kitchen table for a while.
Later on, Jane discovered some leftover materials from our Flowers of Hope Wreaths that we made for the Small Hands Creating Hope project…
They’re a bit like Jane’s first bead and wire bracelet that she made without me even knowing she had a little project of her own underway – except she threaded flower petals in with the beads.
Come see what all the flower fun is about and join us in this children’s creativity challenge!
